Today's I Ching for George W. Bush
The coins have been tossed...
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 45 - Ts'ui (Gathering Together): The king will repair to his ancestral temple. It will be advantageous to meet with the great man. Then there will be progress and success, though the advantage must come through firm correctness. The use of great victims will be conducive to good fortune, and in whatever direction movement is made, it will be advantageous.|
|The third line, divided, shows its subject striving after union and seeming to sigh, yet nowhere finding any advantage. If he go forward, he will not err, though there may be some small cause for regret.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 31 - Hsien (Influence): On the fulfillment of the conditions implied here, there will be a free course and success. Its advantage will depend on being firm and correct, as in marrying a young lady. There will be good fortune.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Tui (Lake), which represents joy, pleasure, and attraction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'un (Earth), which is transforming into Ken (Mountain). As part of this process, docility and receptivity are giving way to stillness and obstruction.|
